Applying for a resident permit

Post by haxx » Tue Sep 29, 2015 12:32 pm

Hi guys, so I'm going to be in Finland soon enough to visit my wife and we we're wondering if we can actually apply for a resident permit in Finland since I'll be there or do I have to do so from my home country, oh my wife is a Finnish Citizen.

Thank you for reading.

What passport do you have?
Every f*cking application is unique.You can't measure the result of your application based on random anecdotes online. Stop being a moron!

I think that does not matter. Whatever passport you hold, if you are able to visit Finland, you can apply for the residence permit once you are here (unless rules have changed recently).

You and your wife don't need to wonder anymore, nor ask from total strangers from internet: http://www.migri.fi/moving_to_finland_t ... sh_citizen

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.

I think it does.
His question is about whether he can apply in Finland or at the embassy. I just wanted to verify if he can come to Finland without a visa in the first place.

You're right but if reread his post, he wrote:

so according to my understanding, the question was not if he can enter Finland or not, it was if he can apply for the residence permit once he's in Finland.

It'd be quicker to apply from outside of the country.

I am not sure if this is the case. Applying outside the country goes to Migri which is swamped with asylum seekers. Situation in Finland depends on the local police station. In addition many people need to travel to reach the embassy in their country.

I guess it also depends on from which country abroad you apply for resident permit.

I am from SE Asia and I decided to come here and applied in Finland. It took almost three months. I know at least two others applying from my home country and one had to wait for 5 months including 2 months the application was kept in the embassy (don't know why), the other has been waiting for 7 months.

Hi guys.

We received an invitation to visit police and it is about first residence permit application decision. Personally, I think it is negative decision and they want to make clear that applicant understands the decision. That's why they have given appointment. Can it be something different? Sharing similar experience is highly appreciated.

Thanks.
